The Definitive Guide For Millennials

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

For all those born in the 1990’s, it definitely has no shortage of stereotypes. Generation Y are famously known as wild cards who carry major student debt all the while rejecting traditional nine-to-five jobs. From avocado toast to taking selfies, there’s a lot of things Gen Y is doing that baby boomer’s just don’t understand. Here’s everything you’ve ever needed to know about the generation that’s taking over the world.

Starbucks

A love-hate relationship for sure. This generation loves Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte’s just as much as they love to post selfies of their Pumpkin Spice Latte. But one thing the coffee giant can’t get right? Spelling our names correctly! Seriously, how can you mess up the name Jude? 

 

 

Reusable Bags

The current generation is paying attention to the environment and their eco-footprint. In the past recent years, they’ve been pushing for a ban on plastic bags and promoting the use of reusable shopping bags. 

 

Throw Back Thursday

Throwback Thursday is a trend anyone born in the 1990’s are masters of on social media. They take to Instagram or Twitter to post older photographs, oftentimes it’s from their childhood and always hilarious.

 

 

Whole Foods

Whole Foods Market is the holy mecca of our time. The food store’s emphasis on wellness and on-brand marketing checks off every box. Now that Amazon acquired them, it’s definitely the ’90s kid’s retailer of choice.

 

Cards Against Humanity

The hilarious party game in which players fill in the blanks using offensive and politically incorrect phrases. If you’re a millennial, you have played Cards Against Humanity and you loved every second of it.

 

 

Acting Like a Cheesy Tourist

Iconic landmarks like the Leaning Tower of Pisa just begs millennial’s to come to take Instagram pictures. The ’90s generation is pretty technologically savvy and can’t refuse a selfie. Of course, that means being typical tourists and taking classic cheesy pictures whenever the moment arises.
